MyEG Appointed To Handle Malaysia Foreign Worker Rehiring Effective Feb 15, 2016adminemanpower
My EG Services Bhd (MyEG), which last September received a Government contract to register illegal foreign workers, has been appointed to take part in the programme to rehire foreign workers without permits, effective Feb 15, 2016.
As announced by the Prime Minister under the recalibrated 2016 Budget, foreign workers without permits will be given valid work permits. The registration will start on Feb 15.
The e-Government services provider told Bursa Malaysia that it had on Thursday received a letter of appointment from the ministry in relation to the management of illegal foreign workers for the rehiring programme.
“All terms and conditions as stated in the earlier letter will be replaced with the new conditions as stated in the letter dated Feb 11, 2016,” MyEG said.
The latest project, it said, would take effect from Feb 15 till Aug 15, 2016. The tenure of the previous agreement had been Sept 4, 2015 to March 4, 2016.
“The project has no fixed value as it is dependent on the number of illegal foreign workers successfully registered,” MyEG said.
According to reports, the Government is targeting to register the estimated two million illegal workers in the country under the rehiring programme, whose first phase will span three months.
MyEG shares shed 1 sen to close at RM2.24 on Thursday, with 3.42 million shares changing hands.
